Not having taken part in a night run, let alone a trail run at night, we weren't quite sure what to expect. Ever played stuck in the mud at school? Yea, this was like that, but literally getting stuck in the mud ;-)
Only being able to see the path directly in front of you by torch light was pretty unreal, when you were being confronted by trees, hedges, the occasional dog and quite a few stank bogs! It hightened every sense you had available to you to try to make sure you weren't slipping over, getting stuck and following the right path.
And what an experience it was. Everyone was pretty friendly & supportive around the route and it was hella fun. The Mavericks beer at the end was well deserved. Will definitely be back for more!

It was my first Olympic distance triathlon and it was amazing! The team were fantastic throughout the year. Super helpful whenever we asked any questions about the course & specifically the open water swim ;)! The briefing on the day was superb and the marshalls were great. The helpers at the water stations kept us smiling when the pain started to kick in. Our families and little kiddos were more than entertained for the duration with loads going on for free around the expo! All round, great atmosphere, great people, great event! We'll be back!
